Our Library: Our Shared Space

Welcome back, and "Hello again!” We are excited to see you filling up your Library. All of our services and spaces are back, and you can once more eat and drink as you work and play.

Taking care of one another year-round.

You can visit your Library in ways that make you feel comfortable, and we ask that you consider the different comfort levels, health risks, and health needs of everyone around you.

  • Masks are highly encouraged, and free masks are available for you. Just ask us! Please respect others’ decisions around masking.
  • Some folks need a little more distance. Please be mindful of those around you and respect their personal space.
  • Wash or sanitize hands frequently.
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or tissue.
  • Stay home if you are sick or feeling unwell. Curbside Pick-up and E-Library services are here to help.
  • Send a friend or family member to pick up a rapid test kit as needed.

Our Status of Library Service changes based on the latest public health and safety regulations and recommendations. Be sure to check here as restrictions change for Nova Scotia.
